5 Abstract BACKGROUND: Menopausal (a normal condition that all women experience as they age. The term "menopause" can describe any of the changes a woman goes through either just before or after she stops menstruating, marking the end of her reproductive period)symptoms include hot flushes,(Hot flushes are a common symptom of the menopause experienced by 75% of menopausal women and can be described as a sudden feeling of warmth or heat in the body. Hot flushes may occur on their own but are often accompanied by night sweats or excessive sweating during the day.) insomnia, (also known as sleeplessness, is a sleep disorder where people have trouble sleeping)nocturnal sweating,(is the occurrence of excessive sweating during sleep) dizziness,(the feeling of being lightheaded, woozy, or unbalanced) headaches and palpitations. (make you feel like your heart is beating too hard or too fast, skipping a beat, or fluttering)These symptoms reflect adaptation of the body to estrogen (the primary female sex hormone as well as a medication. It is responsible for the development and regulation of the female reproductive system and secondary sex characteristics.)deprivation which affects various central neurotransmitters. METHODS: In this study, the efficacy has been tested of a plant product based on extracts of the leaves of Salvia officinalis (sage) and Medicago sativa (alfalfa) in the treatment of hot flushes in 30 menopausal women with these symptoms. RESULTS: Hot flushes and night sweating completely disappeared in 20 women: four women showed good improvement and the other six showed a reduction in symptoms. GnRH (GnRH is a tropic peptide hormone synthesized and released from GnRH neurons within the hypothalamus. The peptide belongs to gonadotropin-releasing hormone family. It constitutes the initial step in the hypothalamic–pituitary–gonadal axis)and TRH(Thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH), also called thyrotropin-releasing factor (TRF) or thyroliberin, is a releasing hormone, produced by the hypothalamus, that stimulates the release of thyrotropin (thyroid-stimulating hormone or TSH) and prolactin from the anterior pituitary.)tests were performed in 8 women to evaluate TSH and Prl responses before and after 3 months of therapy. The plants product induced a significant increase in Prl and TSH response to TRH. Basal levels of estradiol, (Estradiol (E2), also spelled oestradiol, is a steroid, an estrogen, and the primary female sex hormone)LH,(A luteinizing hormone test measures the amount of luteinizing hormone (LH) in a sample of blood or urine. LH is produced by the pituitary gland.) FSH,(A follicle-stimulating hormone test measures the amount of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in a blood sample. FSH is produced by the pituitary gland.) Prl (Prolactin (PRL), also known as luteotropic hormone or luteotropin, is a protein that is best known for its role in enabling mammals, usually females, to produce milk. )and TSH (Thyroid-stimulating hormone (also known as thyrotropin, thyrotropic hormone, TSH, or hTSH for human TSH) is a pituitary hormone that stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroxine (T4), and then triiodothyronine (T3) which stimulates the metabolism of almost every tissue in the body)were unchanged. CONCLUSIONS: The product seams to have a central slight antidopaminergic action without side effects and is an effective agent in the treatment of menopausal symptoms.
